A REVIEW of waste disposal services has led AW Repair Group to partner with Nottinghamshire based Oakwood Environmental.
Standardising processes and supply chains across the bodyshop group has been a key focus for 2014 and following a thorough tender process Oakwood demonstrated their cradle to grave audit trail as well as accepting mixed recyclables to meet a 97% recover/recycle target.
AW Repair Group’s managing director Andrew Walsh (left) said: “Our supply chain review process obviously looks for a cost savings but also a partnership approach where everyone at all levels of the business is part of implementing change.
“All companies will have their accreditations and process but what we also look for is a proactive approach – identifying where change could save cost and a personable key point of contact with a can-do attitude and reciprocal business opportunities. Added value!”
Oakwood Environmental will provide services for hazardous waste, dry waste, mixed and bulk on cycles relevant to each producing operation. Online management reports also provide the quick information to demonstrate a full waste management process is in place to the highest standards.
AW Repair Group has already reviewed and implementing change in parts supply, courtesy car supply, IT support, print & document management, vehicle logistics and energy supply.
